PHOENIX  -- A new exhibit at a Phoenix art gallery is sure to get you "pumped." The Inspired Soles art show features stilettos like you've never seen them before.

More than 50 artists have donated hundreds of hours, transforming run-of-the-mill black stiletto shoes into works of art at the 6th Avenue Gallery.

The First Friday art show and fundraiser is a free event that benefits Artlink Phoenix. And although there's no charge to attend, organizers hope First Friday patrons will bid on these unique art pieces and support the local downtown arts scene. Bids start at $25.
6th Avenue Gallery is located at 650 N. 6th Avenue (basement level) in downtown Phoenix.

First Friday Debut, April 4
6 p.m.-10 p.m., Public Showing
6 p.m.-9 p.m., Silent Auction (starting bids are $25)
